Bath House John Will
Ask Knicker Ban, la Report.
Recent announcement that John J,
Coughlin, alderman from the First
ward, variously and widely known
as "Bathhouse John" and "The Lath."
would introduce an ordinance barring
women from wearing knickerbockera
in public, recalls the fact .that Mr.
Coughlin introduced a similar meas
ure 27 years ago and it died. The
1895 ordinance called for a fine of
$J to $8 for each offense. Under
the 1922 model each violation would
cost up to $200.
"Any female person," ran Mr.
Coughlin'a original measure, "shall
be prohibited to ride or attempt to
ride any bicycle, tricycle or to pub
licly promenade while dressed or ar
rayed in costumes commonly known
as bloomers, knickers, baseball at

Jilted Suitor Publishes
Reports of Girl's Death.
A joke is a joke, but to read three
separate notices .of her funeral in
tjvo weeks is too much, according
to Miss Emily Moll. At the last
funeral Miss Emily had to entertain
Mono the mourners,, who had read
the third- notice. .
Her mother had fled, being unable
to stand the strain of meeting the
constant stream of solicitors for
tombstones and cemetery lots.
Miss Moll explains that it is all
thj fault of a rejected suitor, who
has been inserting notices of her
death in the newspapers merely to

'union in Omaha gave a dinner to
Mr. and Mrs. L. S. Herron on the
orcainn of the fifth anniversary of
Mr. Jlcrron's connection with the or
ganization as editor of the Nebraska
Union Farmer. The editor was in
vited to bring his wife to the Y.
M. C. A. for a little "blowout." but
he was led to believe that the din
ner was to welcome C McCarthy,
the new manager of the state ex
change, to the Omaha group of
union folk. He was told that it was
a surprise and not to say a word
about it to Mr. McCarthy. He didn't.
It was not until after the toast list
was completed and State President
Osborn arose to present a fine gold
pencil that Mr. Herron realized the
dinner was for him.

Hear Talk by Bryan
Lincoln, April1 30. (Special Tele
gram.) William Jennings Bry.an
talked on "The Prodigal Son" this
morning to convicts at the state
penitentiary at the request of
Warden Fenton. He likened the rc
curn of the biblical wandering son
to his father's door and the happiness
which ensued, to the reward in store
for all men if they "turn to the
right." ,. . ,
Mr. Bryansaid that many sayings
taken as truths are false in their 'en
tirety, and pointed to one uttered
years ago that "opportunity knocks
but once." ' '
Continuing, he declared this false,
and read an article refuting it. He
promised to have sufficient copies
of this article printed so every man
in the penitentiary may get one.

Mr. Bryan stated that his strength
came not from himself but from the
policies he advocated. "A party to
come back must work for the people
and not the offices," he said. "That's
what you must do."
Bryan said the dominant issue in
the national campaign would be the
revenue law unless all signs fail. He
predicted a democratic landslide. The
audience roared when he. said: "I
ought to be the one who knows the
sign of a landslide."
Pass Kevenue Bill.
"This administration has had more
trouble with its revenue bill than
any other. I expected such trouble
and waited rather anxiously for the
curtain to rise."
Mr. Bryan described the outline of
the revenue bill by becretary Mellon
as the worst "piracy in history." He
said the republican caucus should be
given credit for refusing to sanction
the alleged Mellon plan to free war
profiteers from taxes.
Mr, Bryan declared every act of
congress under the Harding adminis
tration, worthy of public praise, had
its incipiency with the agricultural
bloc. Mr. Bryan said the anti-option
bill of the republcan administration
was a good measure.. He said the
packers bill was fairly decent.
He blamed the federal reserve
board for reduction of farm prices
and attacked Secretary Mellon for a
statement credited to him against an
attempt of congress to put a farmer
on the board. "We also should have
a laborer and a business man, who
is not a banker," he declared.

Charge Prestige Destroyed.
The delegation that railed on the
secretary reported the National
Fopular Government League and the
Foreign l'olicy association, two or
ganizations which are charging that
the policy of the administration con
stitutes unwarranted interference In
Haiti' domestic affairs, is against
the principles of the American con
stitution, destroys American prestige
before the world, and lays the Amer
ican government open to accusations
of tyranny and imperialism. Those
who acted as spokesmen for the com
mittee were: Senator Robert L.
Owen of Oklahoma; Louis Marshall
of New York and Michael Francis
Dovle of Philadelphia.
In reply to their representations,
Secretary Hughes said:
"It is a pleasure to meet you per

tunity to make your statements with
regard to the relations of the United
States to Haitai. I cannot, how-
e-er, permit my silence to be misin

Quite the contrary is the case.
